"Hot chocolate could warm you up on a cold day, but what about those unmercifully cold sub-zero days? This recipe uses a combination of spices and creamy chocolate to create a smooth drink with a lingering warmth. Garnish with a candy cane or cinnamon stick if desired."

white chocolate, chopped
This was nice twist on regular hot chocolate. I didn't have any cayenne papper on hand so I substituted chili powder instead and it was still pretty good. You may want to strain it before you drink it if you don't like little bits of floating spices.
This was okay. It tasted kinda funny to me.
Now this stuff is awesome! I have always been a white chocolate fan. I also love cayenne pepper. I never would have dreamed of ever having the two together. I can't say enough good about it. Best hot chocolate I ever had! Beware though! Do not drink too much! This will do to you the same as eating too much candy will do to you. You stomach will not feel well, trust me. You can have too much of a good thing. Still 5 stars for sure! Emailing this one all over the place!
easy to make gourmet hot chocolate. my friends told me they aren't going to starbucks anymore to get their white hot chocolate. they'll just come round my house instead!
Cayanne Pepper in white hot chocolate? I said no way. But then I tasted it. YES WAY! Its amazing! You can not taste it, only feel the warmth and spicyness. I added more. Everyone who tasted it couldn't get enough and no one could tell what the secret ingredient was- although they knew it was there. I made four batches last night and can't wait to make more! Add a little aged rum and WOW (look for a # on the bottle or "anejo" for aged rum). To the person who used Chilli powder- that's not even close. Cayanne give heat, not flavor. Chilli peppers do the opposite. I bet with Chilli it was gross. You should try it again with Cayenne, you'll love it.
Yum! I have been waiting to try this and this morning it was finally cold enough! The pepper freaked me out a little but once I tasted it...no more! On the reheat I did add about a tsp of vanilla which made it even more tasty. Thanks!
mmmm, yummy. I think the egg overpowers the drink a little, but the cayenne pepper definitely adds a kick and warms your throat quickly. Delicious!
My new favorite hot chocolate. I'm afraid to add the egg, but it's still great without it. If you want to go hotter, just add more pepper and cinnamon. Fantastic.
